RHN 18/2013 | Event

Organiser: British Agricultural History Society

8-10 April 2013, Askham Bryan College, near York

Speakers include Professor Michael Turner (University of Hull) on the hidden history of ‘yeoman’ survival in the 20th century, Dr Paul Brassley (University of Exeter) on technical change in agriculture in the mid 20th century using evidence from the south-west Farm Management Survey, and Professor Joyce Burnette will join us from Wabash University, Indiana to speak on the utility of 18th and 19th century farm account books.

There will be a New Research Session, which this year will feature three papers from scholars researching various issues connected to early modern rural history.
